, as the obama administration issues new rules governing what insurers must cover. >> woodruff: and we close under the bright lights of high school football, where a trail-blazing coach puts her players' studies ahead of practice. >> you won't be playing football. we like to think we have a lot of life to live so you will too and you need to prepare for that. football is kind of just icing on the >> brown: that's all ahead on tonight's newshour. major funding for the pbs newshour has been provided by: >> bnsf railway. >> and by the alfred p. sloan foundation. supporting science, technology, and improved economic performance and financial literacy in the 21st century. and with the ongoing support of these institutions and foundations. and... this program was made possible by the corporation for public broadcasting. and by contributions to your pbs station from viewers like you. thank you. >> woodruff: this was a day of urgent diplomacy aimed at stopping the battle of air strikes and rockets between israel and hamas. rumors of a cease-fire flew all day, and secretary of state clinton arrived i
and administration would john bolton. we have seen it in a couple of cases in the obama administration where nominee for a high government post was held up for a long time. it all depends in the end on whether kelly ayotte gets any allies from her fellow republicans on this, because the way you could overcome her individual opposition is to get about five republicans that the democrats would need to break any filibuster that she might muster. i suspect, based on what i've seen of the evidence, what she was referring to in the statement, that it probably will not be a big problem for susan rice nonalignment. frankly, ayotte is way out on a limb on this. it is interesting that john mccain and lindsey graham, much more experienced senators, continue their opposition. but ayotte says she will hold up any nominee. host: what to you mean that she's way out there? guest: there's no one else making statements that there are so many unanswered questions that this is a sort of national scandal that must be resolved before we can even have a secretary of state to succeed hillary clinton. i think that unless th
in the senate so much will be the problem for the obama administration, but republicans in the house of representatives, especially those from the tea party movement and others will be a serious problem. >> what was an important group of republicans during the debt ceiling debate while this election has changed the arithmet arithmet arithmetic, republicans in the house will be key to this negotiation. the two men that need to hammer out this deal, just like it was over the summer, is still president obama and spooeseaker boehner. >> i don't think there's any doubt the president will have his democratic base on board. the question is, will boehner have his republican base on board? will he be able to bring those in? >> those talks continue. >> we'll find out. >>> both congress and the white house certainly under increased intense pressure right now to make a deal. our new poll shows voters are getting rather impatient. let's bring in our chief political analyst, gloria borger, who's also working this. new poll numbers. who's going to get the most blame if there's no deal? >> let's sta
that -- at the top. you would think that the obama administration would have bought their own tweet. >> brown: howie, what is the administration asking its supporters to do through this tash tag? i mean, is it just to get the word out or is there something more explicit? >> well, it's all about mobilizing public opinion which is easier to do when n a campaign when off clear choice-- barack obama or mitt romney. with the romney campaign having evaporated the democrats have an advantage on this. so obama for america, the digital group that was created to help get president obama elected to a second term has sent out an e-mail with graphics to its supporters on millions of people oner, the mail list urging them to get involved on the president's proposals and to share some of this information with their friends. >> brown: we're taking a look at that now. so that's, lauren, part of this -- this is what you're talking about, the permanent campaign. >> it just never stops. they're saying share this with your friends. make a youtube video, post it on your facebook and your e-mail. the question really comes
in an knee duncan tomorrow. maybe he'll disagree. my my view, the obama administration has made the key priority clear. republicans in the same place. they are contemplating if they are antifederal wing neater are too extreme. we'll see if the administration proposes new reform. i would look for a shift to implement tight as i mentioned every oversight of things like raising the top, the waiver at the department granted, i understand the department is looking to release new rules on teacher preparation accountability. i think a much needed evaluator there regardless what those rules are, it seems to me this area is right for cooperation between senator right and the senator left i also know that secretary duncan has said a few times he wishes he has done more on childhood education. that means bite -- fighting on two fronts. choosing policy winds and building the infrastructure to support them. recognizing new e -- we have to do both the things to get the policy right but build the organization. to get that policy first implemented and then sustained over the long-term. the ground is sh
to be a foreign policy achievement for the obama administration. many problems remain in the volatile of the tough neighborhoods. here is ed henry. >> president obama has a lot riding on the outcome in the middle east. violence flaring up weeks before the start of the second term. he was on the phone again today with two leaders he has a complicated relationship with. egyptian president mohammed morsi and israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu. the president getting netanyahu to agree to the tentative cease-fire with the carrot of additional u.s. funding for iron dome and other missile defense progra programs. >> i have agreed we will fight weapons of terror. >> u.s. and israel knows they send the rockets to hamas through egypt, which is why the president is using more of a stick in the conversation with morsi. today, hillary clinton praising and pushing morsi, member of the muslim brothe brotherhood. >> this is a critical new moment. they are assuming the responsibility of the leadership that made the country corner stone of the regional stability and peace. >> israeli officials are blunter. p
to the u.s. in a somewhat perplexed fashion. .. >> i'll give real credit to the obama administration. they been very good on investment. president obama was the first democrat in 30 years without an open investments. why? because foreign direct investment to the u.s. creates jobs that are disproportionately export oriented, disproportionately manufacturing oriented, and our 50% more likely to be unionized. this is capital we should be fighting for. i think we need to approach in the second obama term with the second -- same degree with confidence going to the point michael me. i think the world agree to engage with us. angela merkel proposed the free trade agreement in her speech issue. i think we should pick up on that and go for it. there's a trans-pacific partnership being negotiated out in asia, chinese are not part of the negotiation but they follow it very, very closely. let's just proceed with confidence because i think people want us to. >> you mentioned china, thank goodness. can't have a discussion with out china. jonathan and i were in china this year. everywhere we went j
of controversy over the obama administration's message on the death of four americans in libya. many people think u.s. ambassador to the united nations susan rice passed on misleading information about the attack in defending herself, rice is going after some of her high-profile critics in congress. >> i have great respect for senator mccain and his service to our country. i always have and i always will. i do think that some of the statements he's made about me have been unfounded, but i look forward to having the opportunity at the appropriate time to discuss all of this with him. gregg: senator lindsey graham is a republican senator from south carolina. he joins us now on the telephone. senator, thanks for taking a few moments. in calling senator mccain's criticism of her unfounded, is ambassador rice wrong? >> well, here's what motivates senator mccain and myself. what happened in benghazi before, during and after, how did it become a death trap, why wasn't it closed, the conflict closed or reinforced, why couldn't you help these poor people for eight hours on 9/11, a day of heightened securi
a lot of these discussions have been about how the republicans rolled back the obama administration, making we can then ultimately overtaken and how they maintain that power once they have it. i mean, cloaked in the argument of what is good for america, but there is not allow a policy prescription in there. >> thank you. >> this event took place at the seventeenth annual texas book festival in austin, texas. for more information visit texasbookfestival.org. >> tell us when you think of your programming this weekend. comment on our facebook call or send us an e-mail. nonfiction books every weekend on c-span2. >> next, chrystia freeland talked about a rise of the superrich, the.-- the top 0.one% of the population and the impact they have in the world. this is hosted by politics and prose bookstore in washington d.c. and it is about an hour. [applause] >> thanks a lot. sorry to keep everyone waiting. i will say a few things about what is in the book. as i have been doing some interviews with my book, a favored way of interviewers in the conversation is to save the rich have always been

did she or anyone in the obama administration intend to mislead the american people. the white house worked to reinforce that tuesday. >> ambassador rice has no responsibility for collecting, analyzing and providing intelligence. >> reporter: acting cia director michael morrell joined rice's capitol hill meting to help her field questions. danielle nottingham, cbs news, washington. >> president obama is turning up the pressure on republicans to avoid the "fiscal cliff." the president talked to small business owners at the white house today and he made his case to extend tax cuts for the middle class and allow bush-era tax cuts to expire for the wealthiest americans. republicans say raising taxes on top earners would hurt small businesses and cost jobs. >> we need to sit down and work this matter out. i think we have a clear sense that there's an opportunity her at the end of the year to do something important for the country. >> he has not waited for people to start smelling the jet fumes at national airport. he put forward a plan. >> if congress doesn't compromise the company will p
of negotiations between the obama administration and congress, particularly the republican controlled house. as i watched the president during his recent press conference and listened to leaders of the house, i think everybody agrees it would be highly desirable to reach a compromise. they also agree the elections provided a mandate. the president seems to think that he is the one who got the mandate and that republicans are saying, well, yes, mr. president, but me, too. and how do you reconcile two mandates and reach an agreement? what are the consequences of failing to do so? this is one of the most important issues facing the administration, the congress, and the nation. mr. norquist. >> several months ago i said there are two options for after the election. after the election, if romney was elected, he would have republican senate to go along with the house. they would pass the ryan plan, taking corporate and individual taxes to a 25% top rate, and having a territorial tax system rather than a worldwide tax system. on the spending side, do the ryan plan -- have entitlement reform, the means t
meetings. does she need to go back there? does the obama administration need to get involved? do they need to be worried that you have the egyptian president now who seems tow to be more powerful than he was three days ago? >> seems to be. it depends. we'll see what the outcome of the talks are today. the u.s. officials have to be concerned. not only -- again, just for egypt, but for the entire arab spring. they see here, you know, power being seized. they're wondering -- they know that they've got a financial sword that they can hang over egypt's head. egypt wants u.s. support. diplomatic too. in order to maintain that, it is going have to cut off that supply of smuggled arms that are the source of these weapons. you know, hamas right now is asking that the airport in gaza as well as the seaport be opened up. i don't think that's going to happen. i think morsi is going to be under a tremendous amount of pressure to prove that he can do what's needed. >> let's turn the topic here because this is something we're going to be watching very closely tomorrow, and it really is getting a lot of a
three years ago the obama administration -- you mentioned this, jim -- suggested a swap of the trr, the the tehran research reactor fuel, in exchange for stopping enrichment. so why didn't that work? so perspectives from the panelists on is it necessary to shut down fordo, and why didn't the 20% fuel swap deal work before? and, i guess, why -- how do we make it work this time? >> brazil has another proposal which i think was a very constructive proposal. it has only one fault, and we come back to diplomacy, its timing was disastrous because it came the day or day before when u.s. at last got china and russia to enforce tough sanctions on -- so i think in washington what are these guys doing? they're sabotaging our successful sanctions policy, and this terrible, you know, difficult partners we have, china, russia, are onboard. and then they come up with something which, you know, makes the whole thing to capsize. so, you know, the turks and brazil got, you know, politely to withdraw, politely. >> so the timing wasn't right before. >> oh, i think it was a very interesting proposal. i
news, the obama administration declines to name china a currency manipulator. and on the economic front, a report on new home sales topping today's agenda. it's wednesday, november 28th, 2012.

'll disagree with that. but from my view, the obama administration has made it clear, the republicans are in the same place, though i think their anti-federal wing they have party has move today extreme. i look for a shift in inch cament -- to implementation as i mentioned and oversight, waivers that the department's granted, i understand the department is looking to release new rules on teacher preparation, accountability, i think a much-needed effort there. regardless of what those rules are, though, it seems to me this area is ripe for cooperation between the center right and center left. i also know that secretary duncan has said a few time he is wished he had done more on early childhood education. i'm not sure if they're going to propose a new initiative. i certainly hope so. but i think it's a ripe area for investment and reform. now my points are right, the blurring line the need for implementation, the need for a centrist coalition that embraces teachers and parent, that needs fighting on two fronts. while recognizing new issues will emerge that probably fuel this -- few of u
administration, a roughly comparable amount under the obama administration. this 10 dribble seems seems to a leg say leg say -- and -- this is the point at which, at least in europe, investors have begun to question the capacity of the country to repay the debt. so i'm curious in what way future funding would be -- would be posted as a solution to problems that the pacifism past -- past pump fining was not and how can it be financed. >> i don't buy the premise, first of all. look, we had a stimulus bill which was about 800 billion. that a very small part of the debt we have. none of it was a result of the economic stimulus. so where is this coming from? the rest of it is we have large amount of debt that was -- a large opt -- we ran deficits even during good years, which even people like myself don't think is a good idea. why? because george bush wanted to give tax cuts to high income individuals and have a couple of unfunded wars. that has nothing to do with pump priming. the enwe had a collapse of revenue that took place after 2007, which is the result of a severe downturn and financial crisis
transmitting this treaty, the obama administration conducted an exhaust i have comparison of the treaty's requirements to current united states law. here's what they found: the united states does not need to pass any new laws or regulations in order to fully meet the terms of the treaty. the fact that we've already met our exceed the treaty' treaty's requirements is a testament to our nation's commitment to equality for the disabled. but ther there are still importt reasons for ratification. the veterans all over the united states travel all over the world obvious with their families. raratifying this treaty will hep move forward the day where wherever they travel they will be treated with the kind of respect that every person would expect to have in traveling around the world. ratifying this treaty will also give the united states a seat at an international table that we currently can't okay pievment the united states can sit at the table on disability rights worldwide and provide guidance and expertise based on our experience and leadership. it just stands out like a sore thumb that o
doing it now? the obama administration will have an opportunity to look at these proposals in november and december and hopefully decide to take advantage of them and use them next year. also i am hopeful and will recommend that this not just be administrative action. congress should implement this, too. beyond that, we will have the proper recommendations with regard to other issues of security, jobs, efficiencies, innovation. this is such an important part of our economy in america. if we do not do it in the right way, we will make mistakes. when you legislate an atmosphere of crisis, where you have a mess on your hands, you quite often do not do it very well. yes, we are experiencing some good times in energy diversity now. it seems to me now is the opportunity and a fantastic time of challenge for us to develop an overall, the national energy policy to pull things together and plan for the future and not wait for another crisis. another crisis will come. when you look at the impact of energy throughout the world, what is happening with us and how we are all interrelated, it is obvi
's address at the university in burma. they rejected me. this isn't the first member of president obama's administration to doze off. remember joe biden nodded off during the president's budget speech last year. he was thinking what he would do if he was president. former chief economic advisor larry summers could not keep his eyes open during the meeting. 5 hour energy all around, kids. >> alisyn: you can not fault hillary clinton with that travel schedule. talk about a wild encounter, we take to you texas for this one. two men were walking to a car when a deer attacked them. he jumped into the bed of the pick up and called police. >> he put his front paws on my feet, got my pack of cigarettes and started chewing them. he broke a police officer's rib, kicked a police officer in the leg. >> alisyn: the animal also caused some damage to the truck. it took more than five men to get the deer under control. >> steve: you don't hear much about how deer are apparently hooked on nicotine down there. >> alisyn: right. >> brian: remember the deer that came alive in that movie with -- in tommy bo
the attack with 42 percent disagree. the majority of the public does not believe the obama administration initially tried to mislead americans about the attack that left the u.s. ambassador chris stevens a bad and killing three other americans. >> as we take a break we want to remind you about whether that is coming our way. we have flash flood watches posted just too our north as well as wind advisories for tomorrow morning around the bay area. we should give some sunshine today and it's a good data out hunkered down and get things ready for the storm's coming in. heavy rain tomorrow morning and showers on thursday. a real wallop as expected on friday and more rain and storms coming in saturday and sunday. we could see up to 8 in. of rain in the bay area through the weekend. we'll have more on the storm's coming up as we're expecting a lot of wet weather around the bay. we're still dealing with some fog and a bit of a slow ride as a major way on the james lick over to the bay bridge. we will be back. >> of the live look at a little sun coming in here. not for long, we will see rain come.
extended, they were extended again under the obama administration. that's our focus today. part of a series that we're doing here on the "washington journal" that starts today. focusing on different aspects of the so-called fiscal cliff talks. we'll go to michael next in fenton, michigan, independent caller there. good morning. are you with us? caller: yes. host: you're on the air, sir. caller: yes, i'm calling this morning to discuss the facts that the disparity in the revenue that's generated in the different tax brackets. it's my understanding that the top 5% roughly makes $150,000, let's just say $200,000 and up. they generate almost 60% of the taxes that the government takes in, the revenue that the government takes in, while the other 95% takes in probably less than 40% of the revenue. guest: i can't recall the exact statistics but it's true that the top few percent aisles of the income distribution pay a hugely digs proportion at share of taxes -- disproportionate share of taxes and that's because they capture a disproportionate amount of income in this country. that come downs to th
, a soup sandwich. you just had a lot of things coming at you. how wow grade how the obama administration handled in an extraordinarily unique crisis four years ago? >> look, we got a rule at the university which is we never let professors grade their own papers because they're not likely to be objective. but i think -- >> let me ask -- why did you get -- >> i think the right thing -- i think basically the right things were done. the evidence that the right things are done comes from the way the united states looking compared to four years ago versus the way europe looks, versus the way japan looks. the evidence comes from looking at the fact that if you looked at the fall of 2008 on every important indicator, the stock market, jobs, industrial production, global trade, whatever you choose, it was worse than 1929. and if you look at what's happened, it's not where we'd like it to be but this is nothing like 1929 to 1933 so i think you got to give a high grade, and it's because the president made the right basic diagnosis. the president said at the first meeting we had with him after he li
. nevertheless the violence continued unabated. in the runup to a meeting with president obama in 2011 president calderon blamed the administration for not keeping promises, calling it knnotoriouy insufficient. what do americans need to cooperate on? in reducing drug consumption but they aren't haven't reduced it and putting the stop to the flow of arms but they haven't reduced it. it's increased. all of thises has fueled a furious debate inside mexico whether the drug war is even worst the cost? the public seems to provide its answer. when it elected nieto who ran on a pledge to improve lick safety as opposed to going head-to-head with the cartels. despite that president elect nieto says he will press ahead with the drug war and maintain close ties with the u.s., but members of congress have their doubts. here is what the head of the subcommittee on crime and ho homeland security said. >> drug shipments or kingpins. he further emphasized that his priority would be a reduction in violence, not a dismantling of criminal organizations. by all accounts this sounds like a reversion to the prepolicie
with the fundamental problems in america? >> three very good questions. i would say that obama's first term has two parts before and after the 2012 election just as the clinton administration was also to parts. i talk about the last six years when they took the house and the senate and forced the welfare reform and cut the capitol gains tax. they never talk about the first two years where growth and jobs were flat when the democrats read everything. so i'm all in favor of a last six years of the clinton administration, lower tax rate on capital gains republicans wanted more the beginning of spending restraints, and none of his spending policies to fruition. and the two year set in obama's term the question is what is the third act. my guess is the third act looks a lot like 2011, 2012. we talk about the dual mandate. so eda 6% of the ads for personal attacks. romney gives people cancer. that kind of stuff. not morning in america not didn't i do a good job or here's my plan for the future here's my entitlement reform. the republicans actually voted for and vote for a real budget score by cbo twice w
her changing story but that of the administration. we are awaiting press secretary jay karen see and a comment on today's meeting. the conventional wisdom is they sent her up there to smooth over the waters before president obama nominates her. but they did not take miss rice's answers too well. >> i want to say i'm more troubled today knowing, having met with the acting director of the cia and ambassador rice, because it is certainly clear from the beginning that we knew that those with ties to al-qaida were involved in the attack on the embassy, and clearly the impression that was given and the information given to the american people was wrong. megyn: senator kelly ae ayotte will join us live next hour. this will be her first public interview since she sat down with miss rice this morning. what exactly did ambassador rice say behind closed doors? why is senator yea a yeah at anayotte and the other two senators so fired up. this was supposed to be the olive branch. it didn't work. we'll find out what happened when she talks to us live. three weeks removed from election today an
to the election every outlet came up with a short list of the cabinet for mitt romney come in for president obama. when you talk about setting up this agency council how do you guard against some sort of volatility in the national energy policy from the changing administration and the policies put in place by one administration carried over the success reforms. >> one person has to take the recommendations seriously and consider that this has merit as the president in the issues i had the the president gave significance and this could be very significant move by the administration is taken seriously by everybody in the government and that in itself was a tremendous incentive to coordination. >> there will also be volatility in a second term there will be changes that have been there for four years or ready to get out but also this isn't something that would be done instantaneously i don't think it would be done under our proposal until the end of the fourth quarter given times so that would be available to the administration i don't think it would be that big a problem although if you had the who
